Nicki Minaj is going back to hip hop roots for new album

Arrivals at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles

Nicki Minaj is going back to her hip hop roots for her new album ‘The Pink Print’ and claims they tracks will sound nothing like previous material.

The ‘Starships’ rapper claims her latest material will be nothing like previous offerings and she wants to surprise fans with a different sound on her latest album ‘The Pink Print’.

She told MTV News: “The tracks on ‘Pink Print’ are back to my hip-hop roots. I don’t think it’s something that I’m necessarily trying to do [go in a new direction]. It’s like as soon as I started working on my new album, that’s just the songs that I’ve been writing.”

The brunette star, who recently released new songs ‘Lookin’ Ass’ and ‘Chi-Raq’, claims she’s

“super excited” to drop another new track in coming weeks.

Asked if the new song will sound like ‘Super Bass’, she replied: “Hell no.”

Discussing the new material, Nicki insists: “I’m just gonna do what my heart tells me to do.”

The artist is also promoting her new film ‘The Other Woman’, starring Cameron Diaz, and has a new natural look, after deciding to ditch wacky outfits and hairdos.

She explained: “You can either continue doing costumes or you can just say, ‘Hey guess what? This will shock them even more. Doing nothing will shock them even more… I really kind of let things happened gradually.”
